Sort by album and artist or year in iTunes 7

I can't make any sense out of the Album by Year.. The date column shows no such sorting at all.

Even if I restrict my view to iTM^HS purchased songs, it still makes no sense.

"Album" seems to sort by the album name,
"Album by Artist" sorts by artist then album name,
"Album by Year" sorts by artist then year of the album

... I think.

Could be. But where does it get the album date from?

"Album by Year" is kind of misleading. It's actually sorted by Artist first, Year second, so you get all Bob Dylan albums in chronological order before you get, say, all of Fats Waller's albums in chronological order.

Is this broken for anyone else? When I sort my New Order albums by "Album by Year" I get one from 1995, then 1981, 1983, 1985, 1986, 1989, and finally 2003. If I sort by just Year though, it works fine. What gives? Is it getting these dates from somewhere other than the ID3 tags?
